Final Exam Information

Our Final exam will be made available on Monday, May 18, by 5 pm, and will be due at 5 pm (EST) on Tuesday, May 19. The exam will be posted on this web-site, and will also be directly accessible via a link that will be e-mailed to you on May 18.

The exam will be open-book. However, you will not be allowed to discuss it with anyone else while the exam is in progress.
The sole exception to this rule is that you may e-mail Prof. LeBrun during the exam if you believe that a problem is misstated, ambiguous, or unclear.

The exam will consist of ten problems. You will be asked to select five of these, and you should turn in only the solutions of these five. You can either write out your solutions by hand, and turn in a scan of your hand-written solutions, or else type out your solutions in TeX, and then turn in the PDF generated by compiling your TeX file. In either case, please send your exam solutions directly to Prof. LeBrun as an e-mail attachment. You can generate an e-mail to him by

However, it would still be prudent to make sure you are reasonably familiar with all these topics!
